Candida, candidiasis and yeast infection treatment usually takes more than just a visit to your doctor, gynecologist, or candida specialist. In order for the treatment to be effective, the root cause must be clearly identified, as the needed treatment may be completely different. Treating the symptoms locally without addressing the cause of the yeast infection is the main cause of chronic yeast infections. This is very common.
In this experts guide:
- Before you see your doctor: what to expect, symptoms to share with your doctor.
- When fast relief is needed: natural home remedies, common mistakes to avoid.
1. Candida Physicians – What To Expect
Candida physicians usually rely on multiple factors to test for candida overgrowth and yeast infection issues. (source). These candida tests include:
- Existing candida and yeast infection symptoms.
- Medical history of the patient.
- Physical examination at the physician office or clinic.
- Laboratory tests such as candida stool test, saliva test (not the spit test!), blood test, urine test, candida antibodies test, skin test, vaginal discharge test, and others.
The existence of multiple candida overgrowth and yeast infection symptoms along with risks factors are usually good indications to start the treatment for candida overgrowth.
2. Candida Symptoms To Share With Your Doctor
Candida overgrowth occurs when the balance between candida yeast and the good bacteria in the body is being disturbed. Candida changes into a more aggressive fungal form that spreads and can cause a wide variety of health issues all over the body.
The symptoms of candida overgrowth usually affect multiple parts of the body, both internal and external.

When Fast Relief Is Needed
1. Topical yeast infection creams
Topical yeast infection creams do not always work. The reason is simple. When you have yeast infection on skin, your skin is already irritated. Applying a cream on the infection, even natural one, can cause more irritation. This also applies for vaginal yeast infection, yeast infection in mouth, and other areas in the body.
For this reason, we always advise to pay extra attention when trying new creams for yeast infection. Safety comes first.
Ozonated olive oil:
One natural remedy, that we have had an excellent success with, in treating yeast infection on skin, oral thrush, vaginal yeast infection, male yeast infection and other fungal infection on skin and nails, is Ozonated olive oil. What makes it such a good fit for yeast infections, is that Ozonated olive oil has a unique ability to reduce the yeast infection on one hand, while helping to soothe skin irritation and accelerate wound healing at the same time. Ozonated olive oil is also backed up by science as a safe and natural effective alternative in these cases.
